I started fishing with my dad around the age 5, fishing down our local brook for roach and little chub learning the basics about fishing. When I got older I then moved on to rivers fishing for barbel. After years of trying and many fish,I was lucky enough to catch my Pb barbel 14lb 4oz.

Years later I’m still fishing but moved on to carp fishing as a member of various syndicates. I joined my new syndicate in April 2018 so I am new to the water but really enjoying a new challenge and had some lovely carp along the way including my PB mirror 33lb 10oz. I’m hoping for more of the same this year but I’m a busy hard working man with a young family so when I can I will be hopefully out on the bank catching some target fish.
